that was never the point, i never said in that post that unaware/prank haze is needed to beat ph xerneas, im not sure how imagined this statement from your mind without even reading context and came to that conclusion when its clear that my post was directly related to both unaware and prank haze as some of the most common options to stop set up immediately (well not unaware). ph xerneas was simply just used as an example as to how the metagame has adapted over the time of set up spam, as time goes we adapt this is obvious and ph xerneas is the main example of how the metagame has changed to beat the counterplay against set up sweepers in general, simply just adding another layer of pressure, thats all that example was doing, my post never claimed that those options(unaware and prankhaze) are needed to beat xern, its like u didnt even read the post at all.this doesnt even make sense, u dont need prank haze or unaware to beat qd ph xern with no coverage. bounce resists, poison heal, offensive pressure etc can all just stop him from doing anything. technically your "setup check" cant beat every single pokemon that boosts its stats, but in practice this means nothing.
literally any mon that follows the same formula as ph xerneas can easily be used in the affect such as "ph smash chomp with spikes by mamp". the entire point is to show that prankhaze/unaware only beats the bad set up sweepers
